Bed blocks are used by people with enough strength wishing to lift themselves up from the bed. This may be necessary to relieve pressure under the buttocks, to assist in moving up and down the bed, or to help in positioning a bedpan.
To use, place one on either side and push down on the blocks. You may be able to raise yourself by several centimetres from the bed.
Ensure that the blocks have a firm base and the hand grips are comfortable to hold.
